Welcome to The Catalyst
Change isn't quick. Unless it's when you experience Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) for the first time. Stay apprised of our latest news and insights while discovering how a simple and intuitive tool can be The Catalyst to change the way you think about calcium modification.
Welcome to ChalkTalk, our new podcast series where we discuss all things cardiovascular calcium, featuring perspective from our leaders and leading physicians who are using IVL in clinical practice to crack their toughest cases. We plan to bring you the latest cases, insights & evidence surrounding both coronary and peripheral Shockwave IVL.
The story of how Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) came into being is a paragon of true innovation – it could be a chapter out of Steven Johnson’s book, Where Good Ideas Come From. The founders demonstrate a textbook example of how the amalgamation of building liquid networks, developing the slow hunch, error, serendipity, and expanding into the adjacent possible led to the disruptive innovation that is IVL.
See what role a child’s piece of chalk, organic chicken eggs and cadaver legs all play in IVL’s journey from idea to reality in this fun video.

Recently, Dr. Stefan Harb partnered with Drs. Patrick Siegrist and Tim Schäufele to host the first ever IVL workshop in the DACH region at LKH Graz II Standort West in Graz, Austria. We asked Stefan to relay some of his key takeaways during the workshop and some of the more interesting discussions for the benefit of IVL users across the EU. We hope you enjoy his recap:
Has anyone ever asked you, “What’s Your Why?” If you’re familiar with this phrase, then chances are you’ve either read or heard of the best-selling leadership book from Simon Sinek, Start with Why. If you haven’t read it, we’d highly recommend it. In the video below, we decided to ask our senior leadership about why they came to Shockwave.
It turns out that our team has come to Shockwave for many different reasons, but at the end of the day it’s to make a lasting impact. Developing a game-changing technology with innovative and passionate colleagues in a startup environment is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Learn why our leaders have chosen to dedicate their careers to bringing the promise of Intravascular Lithotripsy to fruition.
